I love this place. I have taken to eating in the bar nearly once a week in the past few months and enjoy each vist more and more especially at Christmas time as they have the Hotel beautifully decorated. The atmosphere in the bar is really lovely for either a casual drink and bite to eat or a you can have a more formal a la carte dining exprience in the restaurant for a special occassion. I myself prefer the bar as it is more relaxed and you can avail of the a la Carte menu if you desire to do so. The service is always exceptional with waiting staff extremely professional and very well turned out. I have dined at this restaurant with small children, husband and friends and on each occassion I have been treated exceptionally well by the staff and the food has been consistently good with a varied menu. If you are visiting Drogheda this restaurant is one of the better ones so give it a go and I promise you will come back.

Had Lunch and supper in the bar - was as good as being in the restaurant - reasonably priced, relaxed atmosphere. Delicious sandwiches and soup at lunch - warm bread, Thai Curry in evening just right!

It is great to get a review for the Lounge area. The food that is served to the lounge is high end gastro and we take as much pride in the food in the lounge as we do in the restaurant.

The food is wonderful, just don't fill up too much on the homemade bread which is lovely as you need to leave room for dessert

On Saturday 27th October, I booked in the highly recommended Scholars Townhouse Hotel Restaurant in Drogheda, dinner for three, celebrating my wife's birthday.I can start straight away and tell you that it was an excellent choice of restaurant for the special occasion. i drove into the parking area and was diected into a parking position by a man who I thought was the car park attendant until approaching him to offer him a tip when he informed me that he was the owner of the hotel and of course did not accept my tip. He gave us such a welcome to his hotel and from that moment on, I knew we were in for a very good night. We were immediately brought to our table, seated in a very nice cosy area beside a beautiful fire and without delay our orders were taken for food and drinks by a very pleasant and courteous member of staff. The food was excellent throughtout, starters, main course etc. the atmosphere, the ambience, the service, all outstanding. It was a perfect night and a very enjoyable night. I highly recommend a visit to the restaurant and I can assure you that you will return with other friends.
